Dear comrades:

Revolutionary History is a united front journal.
We published our last journal (number 22, Volume 6, no 2/3) on the history
of the revolutionary marxist movement in Britain and Ireland from the 1930s
to the 1960s.
We are preparing a next issue on Sri Lanka and later on Cuba & Latin America
and on Russia.
We need volunteers to help us in the translation of documents from
Spanish and Russian into English.
We are also planning to create a Web Page and to produce a discussion list
in the internet which will deal with the history of the workers and
revolutionary movement.
Another idea that we have is to print a regular bulletin with the best
discussions inside the left lists concerning questions of the history of
the workers and revolutionary movement.
If some comrades or groups want to contribute to those tasks with some
ideas or material help she/he is more than welcome.
We are also asking the different papers, journals and groups which published
some researches about our last issues to send these articles to our e-mail
